My Students

Although most of my ELL students are from Central America and the Caribbean, some were born in the United States. The majority of parents don't speak English so the students only receive English instruction at school.

For the most part, the students struggle with daily oral language because they don't get a chance to practice the English language at home.

My students attend school in South Florida. There aren't many after-school academic programs and parents are always asking for ways to help the students at home.

My Project

The vocabulary activity will make a difference in the students' learning because the students will make a connection with the pictures and the words. The word building activity will give them the vowel patterns they need in order to spell the words correctly.

The students will learn reading skills they can apply when reading in any class: mathematics, science, and/or social studies.

The activities can be used individually or in groups which will give the students an opportunity to challenge themselves and also their classmates.

These activities will give students the confidence to become better spellers especially the word building flip book.
